two skies

A lot of luck is involved in taking a photograph. Sure, you can have wonderful low contrast light, a beautifully textured cloud cover, you can run out to the lake with a certain picture in mind, you can find an interesting foreground element to draw the viewer into the image, but if the wind kicks up a little as you're setting up your tripod and the water gets a little choppy, there goes your glassy mirror effect, and there goes your photograph. This time the wind cooperated nicely, thank you, but often it doesn't.
